You are in a state of full Hop Delusion, but you knew what you signed up for when you popped this bottle. You knew that it had over 100 IBUs of hop bitterness and that it was dry hopped with insane amounts of Simcoe and Mosaic hops, but you chose to drink it anyway. It's difficult to say if you will ever snap out of it, for you have been smitten with the disorder that many can never overcome.

Overall this is probably the best beer I've had from Karbach.

I have had this from cans and bottle. Both versions are phenomenal.

Appearance: Golden tangerine color with a white foamy head which possesses great retention. Lacing throughout the drinking experience.

Smell: Lots of dank citrus, Citra dry-hopping makes this wonderful to smell. This is a fantastic beer to admire and just keeps getting better and more fragrant as it warms. Alcohol is invisible.

Taste: Very hop forward but the citrus intensity is so delightful. Passion fruit, grapefruit and sweet caramel dance on the palate. Bitterness is at a balanced level, enough to which states this is a DIPA. Clean finish as well, which I thoroughly enjoyed.

Mouthfeel: Assertive, complex but very smooth and almost creamy texture. This is a beer I could enjoy over and over again.

Overall if you have any friends/relatives/trade partners in Texas, please get your hands on this one. Fantastic and a joy to drink.
